Meteorites - new Echo and the Bunnymen album out 5/26!
Early this morning a massive fireball was seen streaking across the sky in western Siberia. followed by a sonic boom that reportadly damaged buidlings across a large area of
the territory. Early reports describe over 900 people being injured (mostly by glass and window debris). This looks like a big one!
Watch this spectacular dashboard camera footage:
A bright daytime fireball was seen traveling in the skies over central California and Nevada on Sunday morning around 8am Pacific Time. Based on many sightings, photographs,
and radar data, a proposed fall area was established (east of Sacramento, CA near Coloma) and the recovery efforts began. The first find was reported to the Meteorite Mailing List
on 4/24 at 11:00am Pacific Time (Recovery by Robert Ward) and looks to be a CM carbonaceous chondrite! An additional find was reported to this list later in the day (see link below).
This is an exciting fall!
